Maybe you don’t know much about chiropractors but you’ve heard friends and family tout the benefits of going to theirs. Perhaps you’ve wondered if Federal Way chiropractors Dr. Andrew Winger and Dr. Frank Rossi could effectively treat your aches and pains and help you live a pain-free life.
Before you listen to anymore outside information it’s important that you are able to spot the popular myths surrounding chiropractic care so you can make a more informed decision about your health.
Myth #1: Chiropractors aren’t doctors
Did you know that chiropractors actually earn a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from their college? The curriculum that chiropractors go through is almost the same as those who go through medical school. Plus, chiropractors tend to have more hours of classroom education than other medical professionals.
Just like a medical doctor your chiropractor in Federal Way has gone through extensive testing and licensing to offer you the best and safest chiropractor services possible. The main difference between chiropractors and medical doctors has very little to do with their education and more to do with how they prefer to care for patients.
Myth #2: You have to go to a chiropractor for the rest of your life
When patients come into our Federal Way chiropractic office they are usually coming in for a very specific problem. We will sit down and create a treatment plan to help target their issues and alleviate their symptoms. Once the problem has been fixed and symptoms go away your chiropractic treatment is over.
However, some patients do come in for chronic issues and therefore will continue to come in for flare-ups to reduce their symptoms. It’s your health, so you ultimately choose when and how often you want to come in for care.
Myth #3: Chiropractic care is only used for back pain
While back pain sufferers can certainly find relief from chiropractic techniques there are so many other issues that can benefit, too. Your chiropractic specialist in Federal Way, WA is trained to work with all the joints in your body. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome and knee ligament injuries can all benefit from chiropractic care.
Myth #4: Chiropractic adjustments are painful!
Spinal adjustments should not hurt at all. On the contrary, our patients often experience relief right after. We take pride in offering comfortable chiropractic services tailored to each patient’s needs and sensitivities. We believe an adjustment should never hurt!
